I was excited about this coat because of the high % of wool (most wool coats now are only about 60% wool) and because the price was incredible. Unfortunately I had to return it because it was definitely too small to be wearable in the winter. I'm 5'7, 150 lbs and usually wear a small or medium up top so I ordered a size 10. When I received the coat I tried it on over a t-shirt and it was snug in the body and way too tight around the arms, there's no way this coat would have been comfortable with a sweater underneath. Additionally, I was really excited about the cute pleating in the back, but unfortunately, the pleating made the bottom of the coat so full that it didn't lay nicely. This coat would probably work for you if you aren't very curvy, but since my lower half is already relatively curvy, it just made my hips and butt look huge. They didn't have any other sizes available to try, so I returned it and have ordered a different coat to try. I would definitely order at least one size up for this coat and think about whether you want extra volume around your hips and butt before ordering this coat. Otherwise the fabric quality and construction were great. Another note, this was my first Overstock order and I was impressed by their customer service which helped me apply various coupons and giftcards that I had to the order very quickly. I was also impressed by the packaging and shipping for the coat, they ship on a hanger, which is great and have specially made boxes to accommodate the hangers. I did have to pay return shipping on the item, but since I got it shipped for free paying return shipping wasn't too bad.

I just received this coat today. It is more than what I expected. It's warm and heavy and very well made. The back pleating accentuates the behind so if you don't have much in the back, this will help. The buttons are sewn own tightly so I'm sure I won't have any trouble with them falling off like other brands. The pricing is great too. I saw this same coat on ***** for $177! Thank goodness for Overstock! And the delivery was super fast. You don't even need express shipping. I'm very satisfied.
i ordered the coat but had to return it because it was too large in the shoulders. i read most of the reviews that stated it ran small but for me I should have ordered the size I normally wear. Maybe because I am a true petite from the waist up. The quality is great and I love the pleated back so Im going to reorder it. Even though I wont wear it alot in FL its everyone needs a nice coat.
Thankfully, I read other reviews on how this coat runs small!! I normally wear a size 6 but ordered two sizes up to a size 10 and this fits perfectly!! I was also worried because I am a D cup and was afraid the proportion of the skirt and where the belt hits could look off, because if the waist is too high, it could make by boobs look humongous and top heavy. This coat accentuates my curves below but down plays my boobs. Perfectly balanced!! I still have enough room to wear a thin sweater underneath but it doesn't look big and heavy as most winter coats do. The tailoring on this is beautiful and the pleated skirt keeps this looking feminine and soft. Who would have thought a winter coat could look so stylish and feminine?!?!? Love it!!!

Via Spiga tends to run small. I wear an 8 in every major brand and even a 6 in some. Size 10 was pushing it. I do not like to feel like the blood is being cut from my underarms when moving around/driving...etc. Order up if you are thicker in the arms. Everything else is very nice

I just received this coat in the mail today. It was more than I was expecting! The wool is smooth and soft and the entire coat is very well structured and nicely lined. The pleating in the back gives it a nice feminine touch. It reads as a far more expensive coat and fits very well. Thank you Overstock!

I am a size 6 to 8 dress size, 5ft 8in. I purchased the size 8. The arms are a great length and the fit of the coast it great. It fits over my suit jacket no problem. I bought it as a going to and from work coat that I would put with a scarf for Colorado winters. The wool is slightly thinner than I expected but it is soft and (I think) will be warm enough. A great buy.
I got the coat in sapphire blue in size 12. I'm 5' 7" and 160. I normally wear a Misses 10-12. From reading other reviews, I was worried that it might be too snug in the arms, but it actually fit me perfectly. It's very flattering and slenderizing, and warm without being bulky. I'm quite pleased.
What a beautiful coat! I have had my eye on this coat for months, waiting for sales at a couple of department stores, but overstock had the lowest price around and free shipping! Trust all of the other reviewers-this coat runs small so DEFINITELY order a size up! I ordered 1 size up and find it fits like my normal size-I was able to raise my arms and move around comfortably. The coat itself is beautiful, high quality with soft wool. I am very tall and it is a good length. I bought the sapphire color and it very beautiful, yet subtle like a navy. I definitely recommend this coat for this price, but be warned it runs small!
I marked true to size...if you are 5' 4" my estimate. The coat is beautifully made and the material is the same. I would have loved to have kept the coat but being 5' 10" it did not look good on me, the waist/ belt was to high and the length was not flattering. The return process was simple and it is a strong reason like shopping at this site.
I received compliments on this coat. It is very flattering and feminine. The only downside is the fit. I ordered a size up because I read that the size seems to run small. Even ordering a size up, the the coat is snug at the underarm but large in the shoulder area. When I raise my arms it feels a little like I'm cutting off the circulation under my arms. I really like the the look though so I'm keeping it.
I almost didn't get this coat even though I liked it because they only had the color (Sapphire) I wanted in a size 8 and up. I had been planning on getting a size 4. I really wanted this coat and after reading that it ran much smaller I decided to give it a shot. I mean, if it was a little bigger than I wanted, it is at least belted to make it look thinner. Well, it worked. It fits pretty well and looks great! I have lived in Phoenix, AZ for 6 years and this is my first fall/winter back in PA. It is good to know I have a pretty and warm coat for the cold seasons.
